George Osborne gets a selfie with Jose Mourinho

In today's society, footballers are very much the biggest celebrities. The opportunity to meet, talk to, and even get pictures with these stars are something most only dream of.

It is unsurprising, therefore, to see that when someone gets the chance to meet a star like Jose Mourinho, you want to walk away with a new screensaver at least.

Speaking with ITV's The Agenda, Chancellor George Osborne confessed that he'd met the Chelsea manager "a couple of months ago" and described his need to take a selfie with the Portuguese as a "human reaction".

"The first thing I said was, ' I've got to get a selfie to show my family'," Osborne claimed.

" I got about three or four, one of which was good. It's just a human thing of, 'Oh look, that person's off the telly'."

Embarrassingly for Osborne, the question was asked about Mourinho also wanting a selfie with the Chancellor himself, to which Osborne replied with "No".

He did go on to confess that "I think he was vaguely aware that I was the money guy."

Although Osborne's job title isn't quite 'the money guy', the chance to get a picture with the Chelsea boss was an opportunity just too good to miss.

Blues fan Osborne may not be well known among the players at Stamford Bridge, but should Mourinho continue to win titles with Chelsea, the Chancellor will be more than happy to be known as 'the money guy' - that, is of course, if the Tories form the next government. 

In the world of football, who would you love to have a selfie with? Messi? Ronaldo? Zlatan? Let us know in the comments!
